    The Blast of Them Mohicans. (1972)
    During the French and Indian War, Chingachgook feels that the British justification for war, namely the 'claims of the colonists' is just gobbledegook for 'King George wants to shoot Frenchmen.'
    He has a long list of The Crown's crimes against the colonists, and the Native Americans living alongside them, that put the lie to George giving a rat's about anyone on the sundown side of the Great Water.
    However, 'tis treason to put the King on Blast.
    Chingachgook's one musical number, 'He's not my king,' got a lot of radio play during Nixon's Watergate Scandal, and experienced a resurgence in popularity during Trump's impeachment.

    The Boast of the Mohicans

    Chingachgook fears that the Trump Administration's justification for war is just a diversion so he can stay in office after losing an election.
    He has a long list of Trump's crimes against minorities and democracy in general. He offers that "I'll haul his lard ass out of the Whitehouse myself if I have to", and further promises "I'll bury my hatchet in his ugly tangerine head if he resists". Reminded that the Secret Service includes more heavily armed personnel than can be readily dispatched with a hatchet, he brags "That may be, but I have arrows as well, and I know how to use them!"

    Space Quo Boys

    Clint Eastwood leads a team of retired US astronauts, called back into service to help NASA beat the Russians. There's a new weapon technology that can use orbiting platforms for domination.
    Veterans of the Space Race, the original space cowboys don't feel like weaponizing space, in taking the Arms Race to the high orbitals.
    They devise a plan to preserve and enforce the status quo outside the atmosphere.

    The Rasta the Mohicans

    Chingachgook arrives in Jamaica with an angry heart, then converts to the religion of love and ganja, losing all interest in British military affairs despite their iron-fisted rule over the Island.
    Not to be confused with the Chinese version of the original "Last of the Mohicans", which has identical pronounciation.

    Sass of the Mohicans

    Revengumentary. Chronicling white oppression of Native Americans thru interviews and reenacments. The interviewer invites participants to end each segment by telling the viewers to fuck off.
    Satire. It's 2020, satire is dead. It's hide is tanned and flies as a flag overhead. We don't know whether to salute it or kneel, but either way it's going to piss SOMEBODY right the hell off.

    Skint Game

    Sequel to Skin Game, 1973. A couple of con artists (James Garner and Lou Gossett) travel the midwest. They had been running a con where Garner sold Gossett off as a slave, then both hightailed it out of town.
    Tired of ducking posses and never being able to return to a town, they hatch a new plan.
    They travel the northern midwest, pretending poverty (without much difficulty), throwing themselves on the mercy of good christian townspeople. They might have to do a few chores or odd jobs, but it'll beat the hell out of being lynched.

    They end up at a ranch run by Shirley Jones. A widow, with two daughters (Linda Day George, Susan Dey) and their sassy housemaid, Pam Grier.
    They take the grifters in, offering home cooked meals and 'unspecified' benefits, in return for a few, minor tasks.
    Some time later, Garner and Gossett realize the benefits never quite have been realized, but the tasks have grown in time and effort required.
    "We're con men!" Gossett snaps as the train approaches the ambush. "Why are we robbing a train?"
    "I guess the girls are better con men than we are," Garner shrugs.
    "Are you ladies coming?" Grier shouts, shaking out the belt for the Gatling.
